Cute Framed Doily Valentine’s Day Menu

February is here! How did that happen? Have you thought of your plans yet for Valentine’s Day?  It’s right around the corner! This year My Love and I are attending the annual Board Dinner for his company.  It is usually held in a fantastic restaurant with the best culinary delights. Definitely an evening we look forward to.
I’ll never forget our Valentine’s Day dinner last year.  We had a get together with a few of our couple’s friends to celebrate our lovey love.  We had a great dinner and even played silly newlywed games.  Lots of fun, I’ll really miss those guys!

Anyway, I’d like to share with you a little Valentine’s Day Menu display idea you can make this year.  It’s so easy and quite adorable! Here’s a peek.

Now off to go raid the fridge, looking at those delicious strawberries are making me hungry for something sweet!

My Inspiration

While planning this cute menu display, I had many ideas rolling around in my head. And the moment I saw this picture in the Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Ideas Magazine I was tickled pink, well red.

The menu idea was featured in the article “Holiday Party Ideas” along with many other neat inspirations. I love how the ideas are so versatile and can be used for any occasion.

Supplies for my framed Valentine’s day menu

Doily menu supplies

Time to get busy, I already had many of the items on hand:

  • frames
  • glue
  • white paper
  • scrapbook paper
  • scissors

I found this frame for $2.99 at Goodwill last night (here’s another project that started at Goodwill). I was just going to take a picture out of a frame on hand, but for that price, I went ahead and bought it.

The sales lady at Hobby Lobby looked at me weird when I asked where the “doilies” were located, she had no idea. She still gave me a strange look when I described them as “you know, what old ladies used to decorate their coffee tables with? Oops, wrong thing to say to a lady quite a few years to my elder! So I searched with blinders on because Hobby Lobby is too tempting for my budget right now!

I found the doilies in the cake section – duh.

Got my supplies – Now I am ready!

I just made up a little romantic french menu with some online inspiration. Glued the paper to the doily, glued the doily to the scrapbook paper, glued the scrapbook paper to the frame insert – DONE!
